With the release of Ancient Auguries today, I’m happy to announce that the Microlite74 project is essentially finished. At least it is on my end. While I’m sure there will be another typo correction release late this year and I will be happy to plug or even host your M74-based projects, the game is finished.
Really. With Microlite74 Version 2.0, I have Microlite74 about as close as I can get it to that 1974 edition of the world’s most popular fantasy RPG and still be Microlite20-based. The supplement I released today adds a number of completely optional rules — some pleasing to old school gamers and some that will please 3.x fans — and shows just how easy M74 is to modify to fix any problems you or your group might have with the game. There’s no need for a constant stream of upgrades and new editions from me. In addition to the typo correction update mentioned above, I’ll probably update the information on retro-clone is the back once or twice as year so that it stays current and useful to new players, but those will be new “printings” — not new editions.
Microlite74 is YOUR game now. I can’t wait to hear and see what you do with it. Have a blast with it!
